2016 FAVES --> 2017 MUSTS

Here are a few of my favorites from 2016 (in no particular order) that have and will be making its way into 2017! 

1. Fruit Infuser Water Bottle

Every water bottle in my collection (that's right, I said collection) serves its own purpose. My fruit infuser water bottle adds that extra flavor to water which is quite refreshing, I must say! I've tried cucumber water, lemon water, orange and berries, and many more! If you're interested, I got mine from Amazon

2. Mason Jars

Parfaits. Parfaits. Parfaits. Mason jars are super cute and parfaits are delicious, so why not eat something so delicious out of something so pretty? Anyone else out there agree? Anyone? Parfaits are so quick and easy to make -- check out my YouTube video below on how to make your very own! 

3. Nordstrom Rack / HauteLook

If you ask me my favorite places to shop, Nordstrom Rack / HauteLook would definitely be on my TOP 5. I recently discovered HauteLook and boy am I OBSESSED! Everyday I check their website and app to see their latest trends and styles on fashion / home decor / etc. etc. etc. THEY HAVE EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING! Be sure to check out Nordstrom Rack / HauteLook!

4. Tea

With our Keurig machine, I have been all about the tea K-Cups! Definitely looking forward to trying a lot more flavors and adding variety to the types of tea I drink! Aside from K-Cups, I've tried a teatox every once in awhile for a nice cleanse and it is quite refreshing as well.

5. YouTube

For years I have wanted to start a YouTube channel. Actually, back in 2009 I posted my very first video of me singing "The Show" by Lenka and was so embarrassed when my neighbor "stumbled" upon it, that my immediate reaction was to just delete the video. Since then, I have uploaded videos of dances, skits, and fun memories, but it wasn't until 2016 when I decided to FINALLY sit down and start my channel and express MYSELF. So back in August, I did just that and posted an intro video to my channel. Months went by and 5 videos later, I am finally opening up about this "secret" life of mine and I am excited to finally share! So, if you haven't already, please go check out my channel and SUBSCRIBE! Oh, and while you're there, be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think! In 2017, I plan to share MANY MORE VIDEOS! 

AUDIBLE - Review

If you're like me and can't find time to read a book, Audible is a fantastic alternative! Audible is an Amazon company providing a wide selection of audiobooks fit for anyone.

The first book I downloaded and finished was Amy Schumer's "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo" which was narrated by Amy herself. Listening to her on my commute to work didn't feel like I was listening to a book, but rather having a conversation with Amy who is highly entertaining.

I'm ready to start my 2nd book ('Why Not Me?' by Mindy Kaling) on Audible and I can't wait! If you haven't already, I definitely recommend checking out Audible! Start your first month free and if you enjoy it, membership is $14.95/month. Check out: www.audible.com for more details!
